Merry Snowman

This was my second submission to the mall for their Christmas cards and they really liked it. I have two or three more that I'm going to present to them as the week progresses. The top of the snowman's hat has a little blob of puffy paint. This is a just a cute, little, happy card. I hope you like it. Thank you for looking!

Here's my first Christmas card sample for 2008. I've been asked to make 50 cards for the mall where I work to send out for the holidays. This is the first sample I've submitted to them. It uses all SU materials, although the stamp and paper are retired. Hope you like it. Please leave comments and have a great day!

A Few Fall Roses

These are a few of the roses in our front flower bed. They smell divine and are so easy to grow. All I have to do is water them and prune them. I'm really not much of a gardener (due to lack of time), so I have to watch and see when my neighbors prune theirs. Enjoy!

Cupcake Mojo

I know that you thought I had dropped off the face of the earth and it really feels like it. I've been working WAY too much at the store and haven't been able to get up to my craft room for a while. But.....I'm back! I fell in love with the Mojo Monday Week 51 sketch over at Poetic Artistry and needed to make a card for my sister-in-law. I still had the What's Up Cupcake set out on my desk and went for it. I hope you like the results. I used the MFT What's Up Cupcake set and SU Basic Black ink. The paper is SU Pink Passion, Only Orange, Gable Green and Whisper White. The pattern paper is from DCWV Summer Stack. Accessories: Rhinestone, Glass Bubbles, Puffy Paint, Stickles, and White Ribbon. The center is raised on dimensionals. Thank you for looking!

DVD Album

I wish I could remember where I saw this idea. I think it was Andrea Walford, but I'm not sure. Ignore the date on the picture. My camera battery went dead and somehow I set the date stamp button. Oops! I actually made the album this morning before I went to work and took the picture this evening. I made this album for my mother-in-law. It has ten pictures, but could hold more. My husband wants to send it out tomorrow or I would work on it some more. The one I'm making for my mom is going to have all of the pictures mounted and scrapped as well. These are easy to make and I'm hoping to do a class on them sometime in November. I think they would make great Christmas presents. I used brads from Buttons Galore "Summer Brads", SU ribbon, SU clear envelopes and a dvd case. The paper is from DCWV Summer Stack and SU real red. Thank you for looking and leaving your comments.
